Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is facing a backlash from the party she used to lead over the controversy involving a former IT aide now at the center of a criminal probe.

One member of the Democratic National Committee leveled unsparing criticism at the former DNC chairwoman in an interview with Politico, saying: “We wish she would go away and stop being so public by doubling down on negative stories.”

DNC member Nikki Barnes, from Wasserman Schultz’ home state of Florida, suggested the controversy is creating a sense of déjà vu for a party trying to move on from last year’s DNC upheaval – when Wasserman Schultz was pressured to step down in the wake of an email hack that exposed internal discussions about ways to undermine then-primary candidate Bernie Sanders. Barnes argued her return to the national spotlight has the potential to damage the party anew.  

“Those of us on the DNC know we have to rebrand ourselves and earn the people’s trust. And unfortunately Debbie’s name does not scream trust. It screams power,” she told Politico.
